Zig Ziglar dead at 86
A sad day for all of us in direct sales, professional speaking and business in general. A giant in the professional speaking arena, Zig Ziglar, died today after a short bout with pneumonia. Read the story here.
He was the first motivational speaker I ever heard. His style was authentic, his connection with an audience real. He spoke as if he were speaking to you individually. He may be imitated, but never replaced.
You did good work while you were here Zig. I appreciate the honesty, the kind words and the wisdom you brought to us all. Rest well.
